Waterfowl hunters should wear life jackets

Crider said that there are reasonably priced inflatable life vests offered by a number of manufacturers that are comfortable and non-restricting, with most available in camouflage. Prices range from $50-$150.

Those who want a device that offers more protection from the elements, yet still acts as a life jacket need look no further than a float coat or jacket, which are available in camouflage. Prices range around $150. Float coats and inflatable vests can be purchased through your favorite sporting goods store or catalog retailer and would be a great Christmas gift for a waterfowl hunter.

Indiana law requires there be one United States Coast Guard-approved wearable lifejacket per person in any boat, and that boats more than 16 feet in length have one throwable life-saving device on board.
